American Canyon man gets 4 years in prison for pimping teen girl
Defendant sent to prison this month
MARTINEZ — A 22-year-old American Canyon man was sentenced to four years in state prison as part of a deal with Contra Costa prosecutors, court records show.
Ramon Reyes-Medina pleaded no contest last January to pimping a 17-year-old girl, and in exchange for his plea human trafficking and pandering charges were dismissed, records show. He was given roughly six months worth of credit for time served, and is scheduled to be released from prison in 2024.
Reyes-Medina was arrested in April 2022 during a traffic stop, days after prosecutors filed charges against him. He allegedly eluded police before surrendering. In his car was a 17-year-old runaway teen from Nevada, police said at the time.
Reyes-Medina was transferred to North Kern State Prison in Delano on Feb. 1, where he remains. After his prison sentence, he will serve a three-year probation term, court records show.
